Hello from Acworth, Georgia

Hi and hello from Georgia
We just bought our first Travel trailer and we can't wait to take the baby on the road. I'm not new in the camping world, I grow up in a camper, but my better half. She is so exited to find out how it works. Beside me and her there are our two Kids. Boone and Lona, Pitbull - Lab mix and 9 month old. We bought a 2018 Forest River Real-Lite 180, pulled by Toyota FJ Cruiser. Any words of wisdom to share about the trailer? Our first run will be a 1 night stay at state park just a few miles from home. I'm looking for a Plumbing and Electric diagram for my trailer, just in case. Any idea where I can find those?

Welcome from SoCal!
If you do not know, find out what your payload for the FJ is (door sticker) and the tongue weight for the camper before you pile it high with gear and water.

Hi and Welcome to FRF!
Just for clarification, your Real-Lite is made by Palomino, not Forest River. Palomino is a separate and independent division of Forest River Incorporated.
And generally, there is no such thing as a plumbing or electrical diagram for the trailer. But you can contact Palomino and see what they say.

Congratulations and Welcome from New Jersey, Although it may not be a Forest river product, You are definitely Welcome to stay . Most of these campers use the same stuff and are built the same way.

Don't think you understood me.
Palomino, which makes the OP's trailer, is part of the Forest River Incorporated family.
Palomino, Coachmen, Dynamax, PrimeTime, East to West, Forest River RV and Shasta are all divisions of Forest River Incorporated.
That's why there are sub-forums here, for Palomino, Shasta, Dynamax, Coachmen, East to West and PrimeTime.
